Despite the cold and rain and windy conditions, we were able to get out a couple times and do some preliminary scouting in the Boston Harbor. There are holdovers a plenty in some of the tidal rivers willing to take small soft plastics. We were having the best luck with the Hogy Skinny Series 6″ either unweighted on on 1/4oz swimbait hooks. I was able to entice a couple strikes on topwater but no hookups.
The water is still colder than it would be this time a year with the average being 42.5F in and around the harbor. As you head into the shallower tidal rivers we were getting up to 56F though. The good news is we were able to find some flounder for the kids to catch, and they had an absolute blast at it. While the migratory fish are still out by likely a couple more weeks, come out and catch some flounder with us. If striper fever is really set on you, the best bets may be outer cape and holdovers.
